Really liking this track by Erykah Badu, “Jump In the Air (Stay There)”, featuring none other than the ubiquitous Lil Wayne. This emerged on the net late last year as a low-quality studio rip and now it has arrived in full CD-quality. Supposedly, this is the first single, with nine other versions of the track to follow, each featuring a different guest artist. Thoughts?
So, I’ve decided I’m going to be posting more of my own content and snapshots into my own life, rather than a bevy of reblogs and what-not (although those while still stick around). What do you think? Yes, no, maybe?
Just wanted to share one of my favorite cuts off of Diplo’s latest offering, Free Gucci: the Best of the Cold Wat Mixtapes. Regardless of whether you like Gucci as an artist, any of the tracks on this mixtape are worth a look purely because of their fresh sound given to them by a sound roster of top-notch DJs and producers.
Fresh off the news that they’ll be headlining Sunday night at Coachella, Gorillaz come correct with the first single from their upcoming album Plastic Beach. “Stylo” is a minimalist-disco tune that plows ahead on top of Damon Albarn’s rhythmic, mantra-like singing. Bobby Womack lends his pipes to great effect here, humanizing the “electric love” song with his signature wail while Mos Def’s short verse at the end sounds filtered through a 2-way radio, like he’s calling home-base from the funky mothership.
Plastic Beach is due on March 9. Guests on the album include Snoop Dogg, De La Soul, Little Dragon, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Lou Reed, and Mick Jones.
If you could be any animal for a day what animal would you be and why?
Without a doubt, a black panther. I find their combination of cunning intellect and deadly abilities particularly. Add to that the fact that they are becoming endangered and might not even walk this earth within 50 years or so, and I’d say you have a fairly interesting creature to take the perspective of.
I’m originally from Austin, Texas and that’s where I’m located at the moment - but I travel around a lot. Currently I’m a second-year student in university pursuing a double major in Business Marketing and Mass Communications. I’d like to think it’s going pretty well, so far. I work two other jobs, one doing IT work and the other working for a major retail chain.
This was a lackluster track when it was first released, but throwing Cudi on the remix alone makes it a potential hit. This track is supposedly going to be on Dan Black’s re-release of his album UN, and I’m really liking it.
